When replying to any particular post, please use the LRARB, the Little Red Arrow Reply Button at the bottom of each particular post. This leaves an audit trail through a thread that makes it easy to follow a particular train of thought. Many members have email notification of replies to their posts. This is impossible unless the LRARB is used.
